It's not easy being green (apologies to Kermit)
Those lemon yellows are currently in my house waiting for boxes, can't wait to hear them. The color was partly out of concern for WAF, since my significant other chose a nice yellow couch for our flat. Naturally, her response to those drivers was very favorable Good job Dave!

Not thinking while i was talking. I am working on another pair for him, another colour — he is going to run 2 in parallel with a small SET.

OK, it happens... btw, regarding Fostex FF165WK, do they have enough high's to be a real full range - let's say in a near field listening position, not more than 1,5 meter away?
One more question, what enclosures are available as paid plan-set for FF165WK?

The FF165wk goes up far enuff for most people. AFAIK none of the ones i’ve done are being used with a tweeter.

For near field i’d personally pick something a bit smaller.

FF165wk plans (that are drawn) are a bit basic as yet, but almost any Alpair 10p plan can be adapted so more can be done quickly. I always look at a bew one as an opportunity to flesh out the planset. There is always more to do.

I am working on a double high, double driver version of the Fonken165TT for the fellow with the quad of FF165 and will also drawn up the Twin Frugel-Horn XL (Frugel-Horn XXL?).

There will be a skinnier CFS, and 2 sizes of Classic Golden Ratio. A smaller trapezoid, and wider ones. And rectangular versions. At least.

Thanks Dave!

I can see a lot of R&D going on into this designs, I'll try to listen first to the stock FF125WK & FF165WK before making decision!

Last year I had built one full-range speaker set with Dayton Audio smallest driver PS-95 and it was good sounding driver even with some bass but because of small surface area didn't have any real impact, not enough even for near-field listening...

So this time I would like to try something with Fostex FF125WK or FF165WK in a simpler enclosure like dFonken125 or something similar for 165Wk if it exists ( like a slanted floor-stand box I've seen somewhere on DIYAudio - don't know the name ).

That floorstander os called the Compact Floorstander. Stretching the standmount till it mets the ground gives a compact footprint. Wide one is drawn, skinny one is easier to do.
